Birth: Aug. 24, 1888
Kurzeme, Latvia
Death: Jun. 20, 1968
Oelwein
Fayette County
Iowa, USA

John Bloom came to America from Latvia. Latvia was one of those countries that was swallowed up behind the Iron Curtain of Russia. He entered America at Galveston, Texas. I have his Naturalization papers.

My uncle, John Bloom, later served in the U. S. Army during WWI. As he and his wife were childless, I inherited and am the proud owner of the trifold flag that draped his casket. He married my dad's older sister Alma Etta (Taylor) Bloom on 2 March 1920 in Oelwein, Fayette, Iowa.

He worked for many years for Chicago, Great Western (CGW) Railway which has a large switch yard in Oelwein, Iowa.

John Bloom had no middle name.
